Now that summer has come to an end, and as we move into crisp early autumn, the falling leaves are a good sign that it’s almost time to start preparing the garden for the winter months and the harsher weather conditions that often follow like heavy winds, storms and even snow. This is especially true when it comes to garden fencing. Traditional wood fencing, beautiful though it may be, is unfortunately susceptible to significant damage from the wet and windy weather, from broken panels to mould. And the older it gets, the higher the likelihood of deterioration. Composite fencing panels, on the other hand, have a much easier time coping with the sometimes relentless British weather, but just how weather-resistant is composite fencing? Let’s find out. Is composite fencing weather-resistant? Yes – within reason. Composite fencing has become popular worldwide amongst homeowners for its unmatched durability and longevity when it comes to fencing options. The secret to composite’s success and robustness lies within its construction. Unlike traditional wood fencing, composite fencing features the inclusion of recycled plastic, making it a much studier alternative to timber while still providing all of the benefits of a timber fence, like the aesthetic, for example. The plastic provides enhanced durability, while the wood provides the classic fence-like appearance we all know and love. However, because of the recycled plastic inclusion, our composite fencing comes complete and ready to install – no painting is necessary. You also don’t need to seal your composite fence because it’s already moisture-resistant! The incorporation of plastic also dramatically increases the fence’s lifespan compared to traditional wood. So naturally, composite fencing is much more weather-resistant than its timber cousin, which makes it much easier to maintain. At North Valley Composites, our composite fencing is designed to be long-lasting and easy to install. Because our composite fencing panels are also resistant to moisture, including that caused by the weather, they’re capable of easily withstanding adverse weather conditions like rain, hail, frost and fierce sunlight. We’re so confident in our fencing that we even offer a ten-year warranty! All in all, we’re confident that our composite fencing panels are weather-resistant. So, if you’re looking for some beautiful textured fencing that will last you through the whatever the weather brings for years to come while remaining as beautiful as the day you install it, look no further!
